Re-entry into the Earth’s atmosphere is hot. Somewhere around 13580.33 Fahrenheit hot, depending on the size/speed/shape of the reentering object. Because of this extreme temperature, pretty much everything will burn as it crosses into our atmosphere…pretty much everything. Oddly enough, an estimated 26 different items on a NASA climate satellite will make it to Earth safe and sound. Great! This Satellite has been circling our planet for the last 20 years as non functional, inoperable, space trash. Now it will be coming back home, some time around September 23rd, and somewhere between northern California and southern South America. The odds of it hitting a human have been set at 1 in 3,200. Is Vegas taking bets? Is there a derivative to “invest” in? If that hunk of junk lands in my backyard, I am selling it on ebay. Buy it now, $1 billion.
